Final Thought

Who pays for your food, taxes, clothes, bus, car, and travel? If the answer is “me,” then don’t be afraid to live life on your own terms. If the answer is not “me,” make it your goal to achieve financial independence. Always have your own income, whether you’re married or not. Plan your future with a life coach if needed, especially if you plan to have children.
